Sometimes I wonder, “Do Mexican men ever lie to women? You might not understand it, but I’m sure you’ll get to memorize the exact words because it reflects sincerity. You might even be forced to tell them, “Please, don’t be too nice. I mean come on, a good-looking man who can cook while a Mexican song is blaring on the radio? These creatures are the most genuine people on Earth. Although many of them are fluent in English, they have the habit of randomly murmuring in Spanish while looking at you, watching you sleep. Though they don’t always agree with the amount of selfies you have on Instagram, they will always say “Yes” when you want to take one. Selfies don’t make them feel emasculated and that’s a quality of a real man. But let me tell you that it never ends badly with Mexicans — a relationship with them always ends on a good note regardless of what you’ve been through.Canadian men are more politically correct on the outside perhaps, but not on the inside.A Mexican man may just up and say what a Canadian (or American or European) man is thinking. They always want to know what’s in the food they eat. It’s “I like you” or “I don’t like you.” And yes, asking a Mexican man if you look fat in that dress will always end in a Greek tragedy. When I came to Argentina, I started eating Doritos with a powerful hot sauce all over it and my friends were like, “Doritos with hot sauce? ” I smiled and whispered to myself, “The Mexicans.” A bottle of hot sauce will always serve as Mexico’s icon. They will turn your round irises into heart shapes. It may look like they’re just randomly mixing stuff in a bowl, but in reality, they are brewing perfection. And when you try to ask for the recipe, they don’t have it. Why they include the avocado’s seed is another mystery. You will want to hug them even if it’s 39 freaking degrees outside…which is not that uncommon since in most areas of Mexico it’s always either spring or summer. They ask this because they prefer to cook than eat out (and not only because of the money).I know there have to be major cultural/sexual differences, and I don't want to offend him or gross him out. I just started dating a Mexican man, and I never have before.

Whether you are in Mexico or dating Mexican men in your own country, it is important to realize that cultural norms he grew up with may remain within his fiery blood.
I know there have to be major cultural/sexual differences, and I don't want to offend him or gross him out. I don't want the stereotypes (I learned all those growing up in MN).
Can anyone help me and tell me if they know any differences (other than language)? I want to know the real cultural differences so I don't offend him. I don't want the stereotypes (I learned all those growing up in MN).
